New 1.5 API to copy/move multiple paths

The copy/move API has been enhanced in 1.5 so that you can copy/move
multiple items in a single transaction. This is pretty nice. In
Subclipse, this is allowing us to provide a lot better branch/tag UI.
In Eclipse development, it is really common to have multiple related
projects in the same repository. For example, Subclipse is made up of
almost a dozen Eclipse projects from the same repository. With the
new API I can now easily tag them all with a single transaction.

The problem is that I cannot do it by copying from the WC. It works
fine when doing it via URL, but not the WC. This is not strictly
speaking a bug, but more of a limitation in Subversion. Really is
just a new incarnation of this problem which already exists for
commit:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2381

In Eclipse, each of my checked out projects lives in the same parent
folder locally, but that folder is not itself a WC. Essentially,
these WC's are all disconnected. So this is preventing me from
copying them all in a single transaction.

For commit, I can workaround this limitation with a hack. Before
doing the commit, I create a dummy .svn folder in the parent, and then
delete it after the commit. This does not work for copy. When I try
the same hack (I actually do svn co --depth=empty to create the .svn
first) I get a crash. Here is the trace.

So my question is simply whether this restriction that all of the
folders share a WC parent can be relaxed.
